No. The Queen and Eileen, when she was in her proper place in the Kingdom, are royal and are meant to reach out to the common people. It is a major part of what royalty does. My role is to lead the Council, now Rodish is no longer with us, and to ensure the Queen is accountable for all she says and does. It is also my duty to warn Her Majesty of problems within the Kingdom that might cause trouble for the Council and to let her know if she herself is going "off track". It is not my job to hob nob with the lower ranks. People expect me to be a snob given my rank and species so my attitude here is hardly a surprise.
How do you reconcile your duties at the Palace with your responsibilities to your estate and those who live on it?
As with all members of the Council, I employ a team of specialists who run my estate for me and report back regularly. I go back to the estates every couple of weekends or so and, of course, it is easy enough to keep in touch with what is going on via crystal ball, especially now connection speeds have been drastically improved. Before you ask, yes I do give generous employment terms to my workers. I also do not charge my tenants unfairly when it comes to rent. The estates are run efficiently and I am always glad to employ local people to my family home.
